March 12 Kits of Christmas

This month the host of the 12 Kits of Christmas is Suzanne: thecardyard.
 Suzanne sent us so many wonderful items in our kit.
Papers, ribbon (beautiful ribbon) and much more. Below is a picture 
taken by Kara: KandRDesigns We sorta designated Kara as our group
 photographer, as she always had one ready for someone who 
forgot to take a picture. 
Fun stuff! We each get the same kit, then make a card using
at least four items from the kit. It always amazes me how different
 the cards are that we come up with.

  1. Marybeth...all of your cards are just so beautiful! I love how you too framed that beautiful Christmas tree and the red is just so stunning! Love it on the shimmery red paper too. But all of your cards are just incredible.

  2. Wow you were busy Marybeth!! Love your use of the shimmer paper. My favorite is the candy strip card as it's just CAS and gorgeous. I love your pleated ribbon....such a great way to use that larger ribbon! This is so much fun....I'm loving this group!

  3. Awesome holiday cards. Beautiful design using these images and sentiment for these cards. Thanks for the nice comment on my blog.

  5. A great set of cards for Christmas, love all the festive colours!

  6. Wow Marybeth - you made 5! I want to see that last one!!! You did an incredible job with these. We used all different things :) Your snowman is adorable with that row of buttons, the solid red ribbon that you wove like Christmas Candy - brilliant! And that big knot in the striped ribbon make everything so festive and fun! I like the frame with the Christmas tree - glad I saved everything - you gave me some great inspiration for a few more from this kit!

  7. These are so gorgeous, Marybeth!
    Love that tree with the pearls...
    and then the pleated ribbon on the candy stripe...
    You really rocked this kit...
    some just truly fabulously gorgeous cards! :)

  8. Marybeth, I love all the little details!...wonderful folding of the red ribbon and the button edge on the snowman card.

  9. I love that shimmery beautiful on that card! You made a group of beauties!!

  10. Marybeth what an amazing job you did this month! I think that my favorite is the snowman card. I just love all those buttons lined up in a row on the right side and the coloring you did on him. But the last card is gorgeous, so traditional, and I love that sparkly looking paper. All the different ways you used the ribbons on your cards is just amazing, I love the ruffled technique!

  11. Gorgeous cards, Marybeth! I wound up not using the shimmer paper but will have to go back and give it a try. It looks fantastic with the swirl tree. The pleated ribbon looks wonderful, too. I still have lots of beautiful ribbon left, so I'll have to CASE some of your ideas with my remaining supplies!

  12. All so amazing Mary Beth. Love your shimmer paper and you really rocked it with all the ribbon accents. Your recipients will be so lucky at Christmas!

  13. FABULOUS display of cards Marybeth! Love the pretty candy stripe ribbon card and the fun snowman with the row of buttons. Great work ;)

  14. Marybeth, that pic on your mantle is so great, looks like you are displaying cards you just received at Christmas time! I love your big striped bows with the Christmas tree and that snowman looks so great with the red vest and those buttons lined up along side it. the sleigh and shimmery paper was so Christmasy, beautiful cards as always this month!

  15. Great cards!! I really love all the great ribbon you used. And love the buttons on the snowman card!

  16. Oh, I love how you used pearls on your tree! And the beautifully colored snowman with the row of buttons is adorable. Isn't it funny how we all come up with totally different designs. You did such fantastic things with the ribbons too. Love the pleated wide red!

  17. Oh love that snowman with all of those buttons, Marybeth! Your cards with the big striped ribbon are so festive!

  18. WOW!!! These are amazing cards MaryBeth - LOVE them all!

    Have a wonderful week, hugs, Karin

  19. Oh my goodness--you made four amazing cards. I love how you used that red and white ribbon on the first card, and the way you runched up the ribbon on the candy striped paper--just perfect. Your snowman is just darling as well. Ciao!
